I have just had the most amazing meal, all freshly cooked, presented beautifully, with attentive but (not overly) waiting staff. Please....if you are passing on your way to Islay step and try the menu.

We only had drinks and dinner at the hotel......we were staying at the lodges 1 mile past. The meal was excellent in what I thought was a nice atmospheric hotel. Open fires, beautiful view. Excellent selection of Island Malts in the bar. The quality of the food.....particularly the scallops starter was well above expectation for a small hotel. Decent wine... More

I stayed at a nearby B&B but had dinner here before taking the ferry out in the morning. I quite enjoyed an upscale Scottish meal and had a great conversation with one of the owners as I perused and sampled from their extensive whisky collection. It was a warm welcome on a chilly fall evening. I highly recommend the restaurant!

Was here with my elderly mother and nothing was too much trouble, they took great care of her and made a real fuss of her. The restaurant was well above average and reasonable, the bar was a great place to be in the hotel and the log fires mad a great atmosphere. It really is a nice place to stay

Lovely scenic views of lake across the road; breakfast with a view. Short distance to Tarbert town. Friendly proprietors. Most comfortable feather pillows ever. Fine dining restaurant on site and comfortable bar lounge.

Don't know who's been writing these reviews on trip advisor but I can honestly say the rooms we stayed in were a disgrace. Food fantastic nice downstairs. Screws poking out of the sides of the bed cobwebs all over lights. Slept for about 2 hours

Our visit was a test for a potential visit to Islay next year and we were looking for an hotel near to the ferry. We stopped overnight on our way home from Machrihanish. West Loch is an old building with a comfortable lounge and bar area and well furnished restaurant and rooms. Our room was comfortable with good sized beds... More
